This time next week heavyweights Dillian Whyte and Lucas Browne will throw down in the UK an in an explosive fight that could put the winner in line with a chance to face a big name later this year.

Whyte from his point of view is in pole position in the WBC rankings to land a shot at WBC champion Deontay Wilder later in the year if he were to beat Australian Browne.

Although the Wilder vs Joshua fight is the one fans want next, if Whyte were to win next week against Browne it would be likely him being offered to Wilder by promoter Eddie Hearn, who also promotes heavyweight champion Joshua.

Ahead of next week’s fight the bad blood between two men is clearly evident as things come to a head via this leaked clip from Whyte today who had some choice words in person for his rival:

Tension that could be cut with a knife, clearly.

While next week’s fight might not be between the two best heavyweights in the world, it’s definitely an exciting match up between two top ten guys who only know how to fight one way – by coming forward and letting their hands go.

A fun fight written all over it.
